has any one ever created a dial in gateway so they could connect to there home network and use its internet connection when they are out of town ? I am looking for any information on dooing this in linux or windows, preferably linux
I've never done this, but if it's going to be over a standard POTS line, you're only going to connect at the most 33600 kbps.

Modems can't legally even get to 56kbps.
really ? I never herd this do you know why ?
FCC regulations. I read they limited connections to 53K because of "Crosstalk" and something about S/N ratio. Funny thing, the max speed allowed is 53K, but I've never seen anything past 50.6k...

If we let people have faster connections then viruses will spread faster and take over the world.

On the other hand you may just want a Psuedo connection to your network you could connect through your choice of ISP and set up a vncserver on said *nix box, and mind the port forwarding if using nat/firewall. I currently have this config running at multiple places makes easy access to a multitude of boxen. Also you can turn down the level of information being transmitted so you can have lower quality screen being sent.
The third option would be to set up a vpn gateway so you can access/tunnel into your local lan directly, and it's encrypted always a +.
Hope this helps...
